Scent of Ink

Presented by the National Dance Company of Korea
Budapest, Müpa Budapest, 18 April 2019 19:00
Different images are revealed on the simple, snow-white stage with noble and pure spirit encouraging a meditative, contemplative state of mind in the viewer. It is as if paintings were animated by the movement of the dancers, and we can escape daily routine thanks to the traditional Korean music, the sanjo and the jeonga.
The abstract idiomof the performance, which abandons narrative, is closely related to the Korean culture of dance. Scent of Ink, which had its premiere in 2013, has captured audiences in Japan, France, and Hong Kong.


The four noble plants that represent the four seasons are recurring themes in the centuries-old tradition of Korean painting. The images of the plum blossom (spring), the orchid (summer), the chrysanthemum (autumn), and the bamboo (winter) were often referred to as the “four noble gentleman,” or “four scholars.” The six scenes of this dance theatre production, which include a prologue and an epilogue, are centred on the symbolism of the plants that represent the four seasons.
